We’re a leading European exporter. We support over 250,000 jobs. We’re a huge industry. We’re WindEurope ,said Giles Dickson, Chief Executive Officer of WindEurope.
With the new identity comes a new Chairman. WindEurope has elected Francesco Venturini, Chief Executive Officer of Enel Green Power, as its new chairman. Mr. Venturini was elected for an 18-month term by WindEurope’s Board of Directors, which is comprised of corporate members, national associations and other organisations.
